Ooops. I seem to have missed my 10-year blogiversary! I posted my first attempt at blogging on Friday, March 13, 2009.
Yes, Friday the 13th. Apparently I have a need to tempt fate.
But I immediately lost the blog for about three months, and didn’t write my second post until June 20, 2009. It was a post on Writers Conferences.
After that, I posted pretty regularly, so I figure today is my real 10-year blogiversary.
I knew pretty much nothing about blogging at that point. I simply wanted a place to put the unpublished columns I had written for Inkwell Newswatch, a Canadian writers’ zine that stopped publication in January 2009.
So after somehow finding the blog again, I fumbled around with Blogger and started posting my unpublished columns on my new blog.
It’s amazing what you can do when you don’t know how.
